Using the Safe-T-Alert Gas Alarm in France

by Barbara 5. November 2001 01:45

Q: "Regarding the SM-STA-40-411-230. I would like to know if this product is suitable for France. I don't see France on your web page. Can we plug it in in France? Thanks."

Answer: Yes, this is the version for countries that use 220VAC to 240VAC power. As you see, it has the two round pronged plug that directly plugs into outlets except in Great Britain.

Thank you for your question. Please contact us if you need additional information about any products.

Sincerely, Barbara

Comment: The STA-40-411 (40-401) uses the latest microprocessor technology available in a propane and natural gas (methane alarm). The Underwriters Laboratories approved residential/RV usage only for propane gas and methane gas. This unit also detects acetone, alcohol, butane and gasoline fumes, all of which be present in your home.

Coverage area and locations for gas alarms

Q: "I just purchased & received two testers from Safe Home Products and I have a question. I have one of them in my basement which is approximately 1700 sq.feet. Will the tester detect any gas in that area or just a small area around the tester? Also, I only have outlets near the ground, will gas by the ceiling be detected? Thank you.Deb "

Answer: Deb, I looked up your order. I see that you purchased a Safe-T-Alert 40-411 gas alarm and a Safety Siren Combination CO and Combustible gas alarm.

  1. Both monitors have combustible gas sensors.
  2. Your basement is too large for either one or both units to detect gas laks in the entire area of 1700 square feet.
  3. The placement of the gas alarms depends upon whether your gas supply is from natural gas or propane gas.
  4. For detecting a propane leak, the unit must be mounted both near the floor and near the propane using appliance.
  5. For detecting a natural gas leak, the unit must be mounted near the ceiling and near the natural gas using appliance.
  6. Proper installation of the direct plug in unit may require using an extension cord or installing an electrical outlet in the proper place.

I hope this answers your questions. Feel free to contact us for more information.
